Geoffrey Beattie FBPsS FRSM FRSA is a British psychologist, author and broadcaster. He is Professor of Psychology at Edge Hill University[1] and has been visiting professor at the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, University of California Santa Barbara.[2] He graduated with a First Class Honours degree from the University of Birmingham and a PhD from Trinity College, Cambridge. He is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.


He has published twenty-six books on a wide range of topics including the psychology of language and communication,[3][4] nonverbal communication/body language,[5][6] the psychology of sustainability and climate change,[7][8] implicit ethnic bias, prejudice and conflict,[9][10][11] applying psychological techniques to everyday life,[12] the psychology of sport,[13] boxing[14][15] and running,[16] ethnographic studies of working-class life in the U.K.[17][18][19][20] and a memoir 'Protestant Boy' published by Granta in 2004,[21] amongst others.

'We are the People' was shortlisted for the Ewart-Biggs Literary Prize.[22] 'On the Ropes' was shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award.[23] 'Trophy Hunting' was shortlisted for the 2019 Taylor & Francis Outstanding Book and Digital Product Award in the Outstanding Professional Category. 'The Psychology of Language and Communication' was republished in the Routledge Classic Editions series,[24] thirty years after it first appeared. 'Survivors of Steel City' formed the basis for the documentary film 'Tales from a Hard City'[25] (director: Kim Flitcroft) which won the Grand Prix at the Marseilles Film Festival[26] and the Best Regional Film in the Indies Award.[27] Beattie was credited as story consultant on the film.[28]

Beattie has also published two novels – 'The Corner Boys' (Victor Gollancz)[29] and 'The Body's Little Secrets' (Gibson Square).[30] 'The Corner Boys', the story of a teenager growing up in a loyalist working-class neighbourhood of Belfast during the Troubles, was also shortlisted for the Ewart-Biggs Literary Prize [1]. 'The Body's Little Secrets' is the story of a social psychologist, Matt, whose research centres on the analysis of body language. The novel situates the action in Sheffield in Thatcher's Britain of the early nineteen-eighties, just after the miners' strike with the mines and the steelworks closing. Self-construction is the nature of the day, trying still to be somebody in desperate times. Matt himself is trying to make a name for himself as an academic in this changing societal landscape but oversteps the mark in his claims about what his body language analyses can reveal from CCTV footage of a murder, to his ultimate cost. In a review in the international journal Semiotica,[31] Professor Marcel Danesi, professor of semiotics at the University of Toronto, described the book as a 'truly outstanding work' and wrote that 'With his latest novel, Dr Geoffrey Beattie can now be projected onto the same international platform as the late Umberto Eco, who became famous for integrating semiotic theory with fiction, starting with his bestseller, The Name of the Rose...There is little doubt, in my estimation at least, that Geoffrey Beattie is Eco's successor, displaying an uncanny and ingenious ability to blend his insightful work on nonverbal semiotics with an exceptional sense for narrative in this outstanding roman-à-clef.'

His most recent book 'Selfless: A Psychologist's Journey through Identity and Social Class', published by Routledge, which is a memoir reflecting on identity, social class and education, attracted excellent international reviews – 'a powerful mix of psychological research, intellectual rigour and personal insight' (Binna Kandola), 'a unique book....We come away understanding what psychology should be....required reading by anyone interested in understanding what consciousness is' (Marcel Danesi, University of Toronto), 'has the potential to contribute to relevant fields of inquiry in the same way Oliver Sacks' books did to neurology and the history of science' (Hongbing Yu, Ryerson University).[32] A review in the Psychologist read 'We need more books like this – where the author is authentically written into the work, and psychology is opened up, inviting people to explore it in relation to their own lives.'[33]

His books have been translated into various languages including Chinese, Taiwanese, Korean, Portuguese, Italian, Finnish[34] and German.[35] He has also published over one hundred academic articles in journals including Nature, Nature Climate Change and Semiotica.[36]

His book 'On the Ropes: Boxing as a Way of Life' (Victor Gollancz) has been optioned by a major Hollywood studio to be made into a film.[37] The book focuses on Brendan Ingle's famous gym in Wincobank in Sheffield and explores boxing in precarious economic times after the pit closures and the decline of the steel industry. The Daily Telegraph's review of the book read "Beattie can write about the low life of boxing like no-one else…[He] has got the smell of the gym in his lungs. He breathes resin, sweat and soiled towels. He even goes three rounds himself with Mick Mills. He writes for adults, and quite beautifully. Not since I first went ringside with the late Ring Lardner have I so enjoyed a book on boxing".[38] Hollywood studio, AGC, have picked up the film rights to the book; Rowan Athale has written the screenplay and is set to direct the film.


Beattie's research falls within the broad areas of embodied cognition/multi-modal communication and applied social psychology particularly in the areas of sustainability and race where he researches the relationship between explicit and implicit processes,[39] and the societal implications of any possible 'dissociation' here.[40]

Multi-modal communication[edit]

His long-standing interest in human multi-modal communication focuses on the interaction between language and nonverbal communication in talk. He was awarded the Spearman Medal[41] by the British Psychological Society for 'published psychological research of outstanding merit' for work in this area. His research shows that both verbal and nonverbal elements are critical to everyday semantic communication and that iconic hand gestures reflect unarticulated aspects of thinking. He has explored the possible applications of this theoretical perspective for both advertising and for deception, where gesture-speech mismatches may occur, along with structural changes in the phases of gestures. This research won the international Mouton d’Or prize[42] for the best research paper in semiotics.


He has also explored the psychological barriers that prevent consumers adopting more sustainable lifestyles in the light of the threat posed by climate change. He has challenged the established orthodoxy in this field. DEFRA, and others, have argued that the promotion of more sustainable behaviour is essentially just an 'informational' issue because the public already have the right underlying attitudes to environmental issues like carbon footprint (measured using various self-report instruments). For this reason, carbon labels were introduced. Beattie's experimental research, using eye tracking, showed that there was minimal visual attention to carbon labels and that explicit self-reported attitudes to carbon footprint did not actually predict visual attention to climate change images. Measures of implicit attitude, where such attitudes are largely unconscious and measured through speed of association, were, however, better predictors of both attentional focus and behavioural choice under certain conditions. Dispositional optimism also seems to affect visual attention to climate change images and this links to optimism bias (He presented this research at the British Academy Summer Showcase in 2018 where the best research funded by the B.A. is highlighted).[43] He has explored new segmentation analyses of consumer markets based upon the intersection of explicit and implicit attitudes and researching how to change both types of attitude, necessary to produce the radical shift in consumer behaviour required to combat climate change.

Beattie presented this research on sustainability at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change at UNESCO headquarters in Paris in July 2015,[44] and with Laura McGuire contributed a chapter to the United Nations International Commission on Education for Sustainable-Development-Practice Report[45] (a report issued every ten years by the U.N. to define priorities in education internationally for the next decade), to be published in 2019.

Implicit racial bias[edit]

Another strand of his current research is into implicit racial bias and its effects on everyday life. He has explored how implicit racial attitudes impact on shortlisting decisions. He has shown how gaze fixations, as we consider CVs, are influenced by our implicit attitudes, and he has investigated how these impact on the representations that we build up of the various candidates under consideration, thereby influencing our final 'rational' decision about the relative suitability of the candidates. He has researched how people justify and rationalise their everyday decisions that often result from processes that are more implicit. Using the terminology of the Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman, he has explored how System 1 and System 2 interact in everyday life and the implications of this interaction for both behaviour and talk. He has given a number of significant keynote addresses on this theme at a variety of applied conferences, including the Annual Conference of the Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, the Asian Fire Service Association National Conference, the Equality Challenge Unit Biennial Conference, the Respect Difference Conference, Police Service of Northern Ireland etc.

The overarching focus of his research has been on how human beings communicate and make decisions in their everyday social worlds, with emphasis on the more unconscious and implicit aspects of these everyday processes. He has been interested, throughout his career, in the real-world relevance of his research.


Beattie was president of the Psychology Section of the British Association for the Advancement of Science in 2005–2006 and has given many keynote addresses to a range of audience, including public lectures at Gresham College, the International Psychology Conference in Dubai, the Psychology Teacher National Conference, the European Conference on Psychology and the Behavioral Sciences, Techkriti, the Annual Technical and Entrepreneurial Festival Kanpur, India, both Houses of Parliament through the Westminster Food and Nutrition Forum, the Star lecture at the University of Manchester etc. He has also spoken at various music and book festivals including ‘The Secret Garden Party’, ‘Shambala’, Latitude and the Edinburgh, Munich and Cheltenham Book Festivals. Beattie was an external consultant on the Leadership Vanguard (LV) with Paul Polman, then CEO of Unilever, and others. This organisation was designed to help shape the sustainability policy of Unilever and other leading multinationals.

He is also well known for bringing analyses of behaviour, and particularly nonverbal communication, to a more general audience by appearing as the on-screen psychologist on eleven series of Big Brother[46] in the U.K. and for explaining how psychology can be used by people in their everyday lives.[12] His work in psychology has been extensively covered in the national and international media.[47]

In addition, he has carried out media work on behalf of a range of organizations, including ITV, Universal Pictures, Department for Work and Pensions, NHS, Nivea, Royal Mail, Disney and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
